      Tomorrow’s Bike-to-Work Day could be the first day of a great new habit.

      At this year’s Colorado Bike Expo, we had a terrific Commuting Panel presentation comprising local cycling aficionados providing all the tricks of the trade.

      Here is a recap of two of our panelists, to help you make tomorrow’s yearly event more of a regular thing in your life… Read more

      • Haute Route Is Coming: A Preview Ride

        Submitted by 303cycling on June 20th, 2016

        As the clock ticked past an hour straight of climbing above Boulder on Saturday morning, I chuckled about the fact that, in more than a decade of living and biking in Colorado, I had somehow never ridden the iconic climb I was suffering on now. Or the fast, flowing canyon descent that followed. Or the gravel rollers that came after that, dry and scorching in the midday sun. . . Read more

          Biking to Work on June 22?

          Don’t just bike TO work – bike HOME via the many Niwot/Longmont Bike Parties!

          About 13 years ago, eager to encourage those who ride bike to work on Bike to Work Day to ride HOME as well, I contacted a few of the local breweries in Longmont asking for their support on this very special day. They all (two, at that time) were very encouraging, offering a FREE PINT of beer to those who ride to their establishments that afternoon with a helmet.

          13 years and about a gazillion breweries later, that tradition continues… Read more

              Submitted by 303cycling on June 13th, 2016

              As we celebrate Colorado Bike Month, 303 is dedicated to providing valuable tips, resources and advice to help you hit the commute safely and well-prepared.

              By 303 Ambassador Erin Trail

              I recently started working downtown, which involves a 30 mile one-way commute, usually by bus or light rail. I’m really happy to have these great commuting options, but I was also lamenting a loss of time spent not commuting: loss of freedom, time to train, time to do what I want. I perked up though when I realized that Denver has GREAT bike lanes and a fantastic trail system. I mapped it out… Read more

              • Boulder Element Stage Race UPDATE

                Submitted by 303cycling on June 9th, 2016

                Please read this Boulder Element Race Press Release from Barry Lee – Without Limits Race Director

                Dear Colorado cyclist,

                We’d first off like to thank you all for your support of the new Boulder Element weekend – a 3 day timed based omnium. This brand new format took some creativity, but USA Cycling was fully on board and helped us format the finer details to mesh within their existing rule book. Our goal for this weekend was simple; brand new courses, the elimination of all dirt sections, and to give the racer the flexibility to pick and choose what days of racing fit their family, work, and personal lives.

                So something must be up or you wouldn’t be reading a new press release right now… Read more

                  Blue Sky Bridge is having a ride your bike and raise money month. It started June 1 but these things are kind of like flossing and eating right; it’s never too late to start. Blue Sky Bridge acts as a soft place to land for kids who have been abused. It’s a place for kids to tell their story one time. Not over and over and over again only to relive the horror of the story …
